Nice job guys. Good to hear their responses to the tough questions. So. I'm still not trading in my truck for a '13. Already beefed up the frame issue. And I will continue to overdrive it. Just like the good Lord and Ford originally intended.

Reviving this topic... But the photos of the reinforced 2013 version are gone. As the owner of a 2010 SCAB, I'd like to know How the 13 is different and what can I do to prevent problems on mine. Thanks!

The frame was reinforced primarily in the area that was known to bend during hard landings. The area right above the bump stops. Pretty much any aftermarket hydraulic bump stop will have a similar affect in reinforcing the area and providing better bump stops, especially the Icon setup since it clamshells around the frame completely.

Thank you, good Sir!

The dedicated "fanboys" will deny all the way to the scrap yard. It is a fact that this truck has a weakness so what. I fixed mine and love the springs! Glad It has the flaw because without it most likely would still have the weak sister springs as well.

Remember I am not a mall crawler and have to go off road with a load (light ones) so it is important to me how the vehicle performs with 750 or so in the back. Night and day with the bigger HD National springs.

Remember at the Raptor Run this year saw two frames fail right in front of me and many other people watched it happen as well and those were at the end of the course when everyone was standing around watching folks come in.
So, and sorry, but the leafs, I'm looking at those next. National HD? I'll look into them. Thank you. I just missed some icons and am thinking deaver.
I had wheel hop both times I gunned it in 3 years. I don't tolerate it, plus the rear feels loose.
If you don't mind, how do they perform?
